A ten year old boy who was upset by all the noise being made by a man working on the side of the apartment building decided to do something about it. The kid wanted quiet so he could hear his cartoon. To that end he cut the rope the worker was hanging from, 80 feet up the side of the building. Fortunately the man was secured by 2 ropes and coworkers pulled him to safety with the other one. Surprisingly it happened in China not the U.S. I suppose if it had been here the kid would have shot the worker with daddy's gun.
Scouts on a camping trip were given beer and cigarettes by their scoutmaster, it is alleged. Police arrested scoutmaster Michelle Edwards after a park ranger came across the scouts playing "beer pong". Although Edwards denied the charges, claiming the contraband had been smuggled onto the trip, video footage from a local store clearly showed her and two of the scouts buying the beer, said a spokesperson for the Bossier Sheriff's Office. Can you get a badge for "beer pong", I wonder (ArkLaTex.com - with video).
And even if there isn't a badge, wouldn't the title of "Beer Pong Champion of 2009" look good on your resume? Four students from the University of Nevada have hatched a plan to stage the world's largest "beer pong" tournament, in Nevada, in August this year. A thousand two-player teams are expected to compete for the title and the $10000 first prize (Nevada Sagebrush).
